Tips for making this delicious keto pumpkin mousse:
- I used Swerve confectioners sweetener as it’s very similar to powdered sugar and doesn’t have a grainy texture at all. Or, feel free to use a keto sweetener of your choice. If you’ve got questions on how to convert your favorite alternative sweetener, check out our helpful Keto Sweetener Conversion Guide.
- Make sure to pick up 100% pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling which may contain added sugar.
- Can’t find canned pumpkin puree in-store? Consider grabbing a fresh pumpkin and making your own in the Instant Pot!
Looks elegant but it’s super EASY to whip up!
Now, you definitely don’t have to do this, but I took it a step further and piped the pumpkin mouse into little bowls using my Wilton decorator. You can also place all the mousse in a large freezer bag and cut the tip to pipe it as well.
I’m making these for Thanksgiving this year!
I cannot wait to make this fluffy keto pumpkin mousse again, and am actually considering this as an easy homemade Turkey Day dessert idea to share with my extended family! It would be an easy recipe to double for larger groups.
You can also make this the day before and store it in the fridge, and if it starts to separate a little, just whip it up a bit more before serving.
Check out what my teammate, Jenna, had to say after making this pumpkin mousse:
“This recipe turned out great! The flavor and consistency are awesome, and it really tastes like pumpkin pie filling. I ate way too much in one sitting – it’s that good! I love that it’s super simple to make and the directions are easy to follow.”
Here’s what my Hip sidekick Emily had to say about this keto pumpkin mousse:
“I love pumpkin anything and everything and this dessert is by far the easiest pumpkin dessert I’ve ever made. The flavor is absolute perfection. I think I’d take this over pumpkin pie any day. It’s so rich, too! I had to force myself to stop eating it.”

There are different sizes of Pumpkin purée what is the measurement for 1 can?
2 cups about 15 oz is an average can.
Recipe calls for a measured 1 cup of the pumpkin puree
Hi. This looks delish, but I cannot have heavy whipped cream. Would almond milk work, or half almond and half coffee creamer??
OK thanks, & Have a great holiday!
Our family has a dairy sensitivity and we used coconut heavy whipping cream and it worked great
Delicious! Used this Thanksgiving. Will come to this recipe time and again. Thank you, very helpful with a diabetic in the house, too.
Hi Tamara! I love that this was a hit for you, especially during Thanksgiving ❤ Thank you for the feedback! Hope you had an amazing holiday🦃
OMG – only tasted it just after making it – yummmmmmmmy!
Yay! SO glad you are loving it! Thanks for commenting!
Delicious dessert alternative for a group. I used as a dip with gingersnaps. I know they are not keto but the party guests don’t know I am!! Win win!!
LOL! I’m glad you love this! It’s one of my favorites!
Anyone know if Erythritol Sweetener is same as Swerve Sweetener. Thx
Hi Leslie! It seems that Swerve is mostly erythritol, but has added oligosaccharides (a prebiotic plant fiber). Swerve can be a better option for baking and cooking than plain erythritol.

Hoping that is helpful!
Got it thx Amber
You’re so welcome!
How can this be Keto/ low carb? 29 total carbs for serving
Hi Janie! This has 3.9g of net carbs per serving. Hope that helps!
Can you freeze this
I wouldn’t recommend it as it will separate when you thaw. You could freeze it and leave it frozen to eat similar to ice cream.
Can I put this in a nut pie crust ?
This would work very well in a crust. Just refrigerate for a few hours after you put it in the crust.
Anybody try this with a Gluten Free Graham Cracker Crust?
If you are doing keto, Gluten-Free Graham Crackers aren’t considered keto as they are very high in carbs and sugar. If this fits into your lifestyle, I bet it would taste great!
Do you have to use the swerve
Hey there! You can swap out with another keto sweetener of your choice. If you have questions on how to convert your favorite alternative sweetener, check out our Keto Sweetener Conversion Guide. Hoping this is helpful! 💓
This was really tasty, but mine was runny. I noticed the canned pumpkin puree was thinner than usual and that might have been the problem. Will try again with fresher whipping cream. Thanks for the recipes!
So happy you liked it, Bo c! Let us know how it turns out the second time! 💕
If you are using the Libby’s pumpkin pictured here it is not puree but solid packed pumpkin. Delicious even when I goofed up and used a can of pumpkin versus a cup, yikes!
Oops-never mind…I was thinking the Libby’s pie filling-solid pack and puree are equivalent-SORRY!
